The main campus, designed by Marcello Piacentini, was opened in 1935.
Sapienza University is located in the heart of Rome, just a fifteen minute walk away from the main “Termini” train station.
Teaching activities are integrated with libraries, museums as well as comprehensive student services.
The main entrance to the University Campus is in Piazzale Aldo Moro, 5. Nevertheless, also many other side entrances to the main campus are available.

Sapienza’s Museums will provide URSI GASS attendees the free opportunity to admire and appreciate a rich and ancient heritage, private visits can also be arranged .
